Colorado’s Largest Combined Water and Sanitation District Turns to Innovyze to Optimize Decision Making

Oct 13, 2011

Innovyze announced that the South Adams County Water and Sanitation District (SACWSD), Colorado, has selected Innovyze’s InfoSewer to support its comprehensive wastewater system improvement projects.

Formed in 1953, the district serves water and provides wastewater collection services in the City of Commerce City and adjacent areas of unincorporated Adams County. It is presently the largest combined Water and Sanitation District in the state of Colorado, covering over 65 square miles and serving nearly 50,000 customers. Its wastewater collection system consists of over 300 miles of sewer mains, ranging from 8” to 30” in diameter.
"Effectively managing our wastewater collection system requires sophisticated network analysis and GIS integration capabilities — and Innovyze InfoSewer superbly combines both these strengths," said Jim Pankonin, P.E., Distribution & Collection Systems Manager for SACWSD. "The software’s ease of use and intuitive interface, seamless ArcGIS integration, speed, and broad functionality will allow us to create a powerful enterprise wide engineering GIS modeling environment — one that will greatly enhance our effectiveness in managing our wastewater system and planning for the future. We look forward to fully leveraging this superior technology to optimize our capital improvement program and continue delivering outstanding service to our customers."
Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA) with native geodatabase support, InfoSewer is used by municipal engineers, consultants, and planners worldwide to create detailed, accurate models of sanitary and storm sewer collection systems. These models enable users to assess the effect of new developments, zoning changes, and other additional loads on system flows. They also help pinpoint current and future problem areas; determine how best to restore capacity lost to infiltration and inflow with the least rehabilitation; predict unwanted overflow events and backups; develop sound, cost-effective improvement alternatives; meet environmental regulations; and enhance community relations.
"By far, Innovyze offers the most comprehensive array of ArcGIS-centric hydraulic infrastructure modeling and management solutions in the water and wastewater industries," said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE, Innovyze’s President and COO. "We design each of these critical geocentric system dynamics tools to help our customers do their jobs better, faster, easier and at lower cost. These advantages lead to faster, more informed decision making and enhanced capital planning. We’re proud to know that our industry-leading solutions will be helping SACWSD build a solid foundation for success in the decades to come."
